Officer Suspended In Death Of K-9

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A Coral Springs police officer whose
dog died after he accidentally left it in his police car has been
suspended for three days without pay.

The officer, who was not identified because he works undercover,
says he thought he had taken the dog to the kennel on Aug 27. When
he went to get Hieke, a 9-year-old narcotics dog, from the kennel
and she wasn't there he found her dead in the car.

Authorities say she was in the car for about four hours. The
state attorney's office is not prosecuting.
